So *you're* the AC that keeps predicting the death of *BSD on /.!

Every single time?

There are five PRs with your name on in GNATS (assuming you and
<jrhett at> are one and same)

ports/76013 - patch committed after four months
ports/76019 - superceded after a month
ports/76041 - duplicate of ports/76013
ports/76724 - patch committed after a week
docs/87445 - immediately adopted by a committer, being worked on

Oh, how we have wronged you!  Please let us know how we may correct
this grievous injustice!
